Let’s Drink to That

I check Brandon’s backpack everyday when he comes home from school. You see, there is a special folder called “Parents/Teacher Communicator” in his school bag where his teacher puts Brandon’s score paper for the day and other letters or reminders concerning school and our community. The other day, I found this letter which was a warning about lead found in drinking water in our district. I was really worried about it and told Hubby. Of course he was worried too because we get our drinking water straight from the faucet.

Because of that very important and alarming information Hubby decided to search in the internet about Water Filters. Well, he already knows what he was looking for because with his line of work he knows where to find the right things concerning houses and its important fixtures. Then he checked which according to him is the leading supplier of water filters and faucets for top brands like Klean Kateen Water Bottles, Pur Water, Culligans, Aquapure, Everpure and more. He said that they even offer a large selection of refrigerator filters for most brands and a wide range of filtration system from shower filters to whole house water filters. He trusts and recommends it to all his clients because he said that "the company is dedicated to improving the quality of life through the quality of water".

Hubby decided to get ourselves the Everpure residential filter which provides us with purified water every time we open the faucet. Hubby made this decision because for him, making a big investment on our health is more important than anything else in this world. And all I can say is... Let's drink to that!

I agree with your hubby. As they always say, prevention is better than the cure. It's the same with food, isn't it? The less we eat bad food, the less damage is done to our body. :)

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
